    Has anyone actually tried this program called Personal Antispy? I am wondering how good or not it may be. http://www.antispy.biz/index.html It is safe to try...correct? But please don't post saying to try some other program as I'm only asking about this one. Thanks for any info/help.

    I do not know anything personally about this product, but

    it sure seems a long time since their last update for the product to be targeted towards "modern spy software".

    Also, unless I just missed it, I could not find any privacy policy on their site. I think if you are in the privacy business, that you should have a policy posted.

    WHOA! Don't touch that! Those people are spyware producers - they make keyloggers (including "Perfect Keylogger") and other such spying/monitoring software.

    I stand behind Detox and Puff. : for protection I'd better stay with the big ones...

    Ewido (is Anti Spyware too, does a splendid job imo and is kernel level -read: can take care of real baddies too), MSAS, SpyBot, Ad-Aware SE.

    With all the good top ones, why would you want to go with an unknown? Counterspy, SpySweeper, Spyware Doctor, MS AS, Ad-Aware, Spybot, TrendMicro (nice little one to check out if you haven't already, no install), Yahoo toolbar (comes with a free Pest Patrol based scanner), X-Cleaner, Bazooka, Ewido, a2, and the eScan toolkit.. if those won't find your baddies, nothing will, and all but CounterSpy and SpySweeper are free (or have free versions). See the second link in my sig for links, there's also even a couple more online scanners :)

    Very much the truth Vampiric and Notok! those apps are topnotch for what it costs.

    There is another tool again which utilises a combo of apps.

    It's called: Hitman and they've updated their program and there is a whole RESPECTFUL community behind the pgrm.

    http://www.hitmanpro.nl/

    it is multi language and you'll like it!!!

    it's the best of all free apps!

    Infinity,

    you have the certainty that Hitman Pro is free?

    yes, it is free, I can guarantee you this. Cause it is build up with all the free utilities.

    Their forum has the same Experts as a lot of ours. the program is built with a lot of dedication and should be used for people that want the best of basic spyware protection.

    it's updated quiet a lot too ...

    Hitman looks to be a very good idea, I intend to try it out, would also save me from installing multiple apps like Adaware, Spybot separately.

    Hitman Pro is very cool, but there is some question as to the legitimacy of their use of a couple of the programs like Spyware Blaster, which is why I don't mention it. See HERE for more info (in an update alert that was removed), and HERE for a discussion in the Spyware Blaster forum a while back.

    Right now, I'm studing for a Mathematical Analysis II exam... ;)

    Thanks
